Would Daniel Young or anyone else having problems with image generation
using Windows like to install an older version of Perl to see if it
solves their problem? Older versions can be found at
http://downloads.activestate.com/ActivePerl/Windows/5.005/Intel/ with
the number in the filename giving the build.

If this works then this would be a good workaround until the cause of
the problem is found. If it also allows long file names then that would
be fascinating.
